It sucks you're having these issues with your truck. No vehicle is perfect, every company has had its share of recalls. I have owned a 2001 silverado 1500 with ZERO issues and I mean zero. I traded it in 125,000 for a new 2004 1500 extra cab with the cluster issue everyone is talking about but again ZERO issues other than that 160,000. One has to expect to put a little money into owing a vehicle, for me replacing a cluster 160,000 is worth owning (other than wear and tear, shocks, water pump, belts, battery) I would say I've been blessed I suppose not having "major" issues or repairs.
Having been a Chevy owner for the last 10 years I would have to rate MY experience with these trucks 5 stars. I feel terrible for those having issues but I can tell you these Trucks really are solid if treated well. I wouldnt know which truck I'd have to choose other than Chevy. I would have to say Dodge or Toyota (but I do perfer buying American) I suppose my brothers 2004 Ram seems pretty solid. My sisters Titan is OK but it gets 9-10 mpg, my brothers Dodge Ram around 12-13, my truck 17-18 (using scanguage 2 on mine). My pops has a Chevy diesel 3500 dually and averages what I do. The only things I can add, is buy new or with really low miles. That way you know where its been and how its been treated a majority of its life.
Oh and GM went bankrupt because it couldn't compete with the non-union companies such as Toyota. Not because their vehicles are bad but because you can get "more" for your money if you went somewhere else. The union workers and bosses pentions and benefits were added into the cost of the vehicle, so over the years they just got way to expensive, but to me still a good truck.
Cheers to all and best of luck with any Truck you all may choose in the future!
#439 of 768 Cargo and Courtesy light problem
May 15, 2010 (11:13 am)
A little while ago my cargo light stopped working. The dash icon would come on, but the lights would not. Then, while my courtesy lights would come on when I open the doors they would NOT come on when I pushed one of the courtesy light buttons. The really strange thing is that the cargo light dash icon would come on when I do that even though the cargo light button wasn't pushed (nor does the cargo light actually come on). Same thing happens when I open the glove box.
All fuses appear to be OK, as do the bulbs all around. The switches seem to work in that when I push either the interior light or cargo light switches near the headlight switches, either they do something or the dash icon comes on.
I tried tracing the lines, but have no idea where the "mid buss" etc is. Tried taking off the panels and pushing in wires, relays, fuses, etc to make sure they were tight. No change.

Solved it. A fuse in the interior fuse box labeled PBC was blown. Like I said, weird (only this time I spelled it correctly).

My 2005 suburban was running fine yesterday. 61000 miles. Started it up this morning. ABS light and brake warning light illuminate with warning bells. In drive, it won't get out of 1st gear. No shifting period. I've seen these symptoms on other forums, but no resolutions to the issue(s). It's certainly electrical, not mechanical. Any suggestions? Thanks.

#447 of 768 Heated seat problem
Jun 02, 2010 (5:24 pm)
I have a 2007 GMC Sierra 3500 Classic. For no apparent reason the driver's heated seat comes on. I will be just driving down the road and on it comes. Not a bumpy road either. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this truck? If I can't fix it maybe I could unplug it. Really getting tired of the hot seat.
